A morning at a koala park

A week before Aaron went back to school 
we visited the Daisy Hill Koala Park 
with Michelle and the girls.

The weather looked like it could rain but 
we took the risk and it paid off.
It only started spitting with rain as 
we were leaving.

Below are some assorted pics from our 
lovely day out.



We parked the cars in the car park just above our picnic spot. 

This wallaby and it's baby were only a couple of metres away from us.  
 Wallabies are marsupials and belong to the Macropodidiae family,
just like their close relative, the kangaroo. 

Aren't koalas adorable?!

Our little spot in the forest

Great opportunity for some family photos too.

  4. Such great photos of your family and you Serena. I can't believe how big Mikayla is now. It seems like yesterday when you were making her little quilts and paintings for her room. Time does fly by. Nice to see you and your family having fun. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    1. Koalas aren't known to be overly friendly and they can be quite aggressive in some situations, particularly among the koala males. Usually the ones you see in wildlife parks are used to human handling so are quiet and gentle. They pretty much like to be left alone but they sure are adorable. Thanks for the kind words. xx
